When Alex, my 12-year-old pit mix, was not able to walk because of her ACL injury last November, I told myself, “I’ll walk by myself while I enjoy listening to some music for a change.” Ha! Do you know how many times I went out walking by myself? Once. Yes, once. I hated it, and I was bored half to death.
What saved me from boredom were the doggies that came to stay with us while Alex was recuperating from her injury. Nowadays, Alex is doing better and she is able to walk with us, but not for too long. I still have to be careful with her. On this holiday, just like any other day, please remember to walk your dog.
And, make sure you add a little extra food if your walks are longer than usual. Have a great Memorial Day from my pack to yours!
